Specially developed polyethylene panels for starting piglets and fattening pigs. The front is completely smooth making it easy to clean for example by a high pressure cleaner. The construction of the panels makes them very strong and durable. Polyethylene is a durable, non corrosive material that cannot rot. It is also very light, making the panels easy to handle. Every panel has several rounded handles on two sides, so the panels can be handled in various positions. This makes them easy to use for anybody in any situation.

                              Verm - X for Pigs

Verm-X Pellets for Pigs are designed to be mixed with daily feed rations. Along with the Verm-X herbal formulation, the pellets contain dicalcium phosphate, seaweed meal, limestone flour, sunflower oil and micronised sugar beet pulp for additional digestive fibre. A healthy digestive system is vital as 70% of the immune system is housed in the intestinal tract.

Verm-X consists of herbs that have been used for centuries as a natural way to control intestinal hygiene in farm animals along with the many other benefits that will assist the health and growth of your pigs.
Even pigs that are kept in the most free range of environments intestinal hygiene control is a vital part of their keeping. Infestations can be brought in by new stock, already present in grazing, passed on by wild animals and mixed grazing or carried on boots and clothing. Fed monthly Verm-X provides effectiveness that is convenient and offers continual control.

Whereas chemical products generally work on whatever challenges are present at the time of feeding, the environment Verm-X builds is designed to stay active throughout the year, so that so long as fed for seven consecu!tive days each and every month as instructed, it is able to stop anything from settling and doing it's damage, keeping your pigs healthy and you happy
